Nevada Multi Vehicle Crash Liability
Accidents like this one with so many vehicles can be difficult to investigate. It is much easier to determine fault and specifically what happened when there are just two vehicles involved. Actions can be attributed to one driver or another driver. When there are multiple vehicles involved, or up to 10 vehicles as we saw here, figuring out actions and liability can become much more complicated.
Did more than one party contribute? Some of the common causes of car accidents in Las Vegas are driver distraction, speeding, impairment from drugs or alcohol, or falling asleep at the wheel.
When accidents are caused by negligent or reckless actions of another driver, injured victims may be entitled to compensation for their accident related medical bills, lost earnings from being unable to work, pain and suffering and other damages. Especially in a multi-vehicle crash, it is important to not delay in seeking an attorney.
